  • The president, Joko Widodo (known as Jokowi), will complete his full five-year term in office. He will contest the 2019 election, which he is likely to win. However, he will face a strong challenge from Prabowo Subianto, the leader of the opposition Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra) in the House of Representatives (DPR, the legislature), who lost to Jokowi in the 2014 ballot.
  • As the Federal Reserve (the US central bank) continues to tighten monetary policy, the ability of Bank Indonesia (BI, the central bank) to maintain its loose policy stance will be increasingly constrained. The Economist Intelligence Unit expects BI to start raising policy rates incrementally in the second half of 2018 in order to curb rising inflationary pressures from the improved outlook for oil prices.
  • Since May 2017 Indonesia has been classified as "investment grade" by all three major credit rating agencies for the first time since the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis. This status will provide the rupiah with support, helping to limit currency volatility. Nevertheless, we believe that the currency will depreciate by an average of 1.9% a year against the US dollar in 2018-20 as the differential between local and US interest rates narrows, making rupiah-denominated assets less attractive to international investors.
  • Economic growth will remain below potential, owing to the slow pace of structural reforms and subdued global demand growth for commodities, but the government's infrastructure drive should help to keep investment growth relatively stable. Steady increases in private consumption will also remain a key pillar of economic expansion. We forecast that real GDP growth will average 5.1% a year in 2018-22.
  • Consumer price inflation will rise at a faster pace in 2018-19 than in 2017, owing to acceleration in global oil price increases in both years. BI will revert to a hawkish monetary policy stance in the early part of the forecast period. Beyond 2019, however, inflationary pressures will soften.
  • The current account will remain in the red owing to a large and widening primary income deficit. We expect external borrowing costs to increase in line with monetary policy tightening in the US. The merchandise trade account will stay in the black, but the surplus will remain far below historical highs and too small to offset the deficits on the services and primary income accounts. We forecast that the current-account shortfall will be equivalent to 2.3% of GDP on average in 2018-22.
